Most people know that when driving in icy conditions, it is unwise to over-correct and jerk the wheel since doing so could send you slip-sliding away. This is the message the South Dakota office of Highway Safety hoped to convey through their new ad campaign but, sadly, the campaign has been yanked.
It was known as Don’t Jerk and Drive… and you can see why some people may have been offended by its masturbatory allusions.
“I decided to pull the ad,” secretary of the Department of Public Safety Trevor Jones said in a recent statement. “This is an important safety message and I don’t want this innuendo to distract from our goal to save lives on the road.”
Personally, I like the ad. It certainly captures your attention, don’t you think?
